Al Wahda star Sebastian Tagliabue enlists family help to keep fit during lockdown

Argentine-born striker is staying in shape during the Arabian Gulf League's suspension

Sebastian Tagliabue has firmly established himself as one of the leading lights of the UAE's Arabian Gulf League (AGL) since signing for Al Wahda in 2013.

The Argentine-born striker, who in January was granted UAE citizenship, has scored a whopping 152 goals in all competitions and is just 13 shy of the all-time UAE top-flight record.

With the AGL currently in lockdown as a measure against the coronavirus pandemic, Tagliabue's hopes of making his debut for the UAE national team and his pursuit of that all-time record are on hold.

However, the 35-year-old forward is keeping sharp, ready for the return of the football season, with a range of at-home fitness drills and has enlisted the help of his wife and sons.

After watching the video above, read his interview with John McAuley where Tagliabue discusses family challenges during the coronavirus crisis, waiting for his Emirates debut, and that UAE goalscoring record.
